Imran Khan | Biography, Pakistan, Cricketer, & Prime Minister


Imran Ahmed Khan Niazi was born on October 5, 1952 in Lahore, the second largest city of Pakistan.  He belongs to Niazi, a tribe of Pathans, his father's name was Akramullah Khan Niazi and his mother's name was Shaukat Khanum.  Imran Khan is the only son of his parents.


As a boy, Imran Khan was a shy and self-absorbed person.  He received his primary education from Lahore and being from a large family, he was sent to Britain for higher education.  From there he specialized in political science, philosophy and economics.  In 1971, he joined cricket and was appointed captain of the Oxford University cricket team. Imran Khan then joined the national team. He continued to give his best performance, but later he announced his retirement, but on the insistence of President Zia-ul-Haq, he again took over the captaincy of the team and worked tirelessly, the fruit of which we get in the form of the 1992 World Cup. In 1985, his mother succumbed to cancer. It had a deep impact on Imran Khan and therefore he campaigned in Pakistan and appealed for donations at domestic and foreign levels. People trusted Imran Khan and finally Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital Lahore was inaugurated in 1994.


Imran Khan takes a lot of influence from the distortions around him, one example of which is Shaukat Khanum and another example is his entry into politics. Imran Khan saw the plight of his poor people, traveled to every city in Pakistan, saw that there are two systems in Pakistan, one for the rich and the other for the poor. He raised the slogan of justice and formed a political party called Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf which gave the youth of that time a third option. Imran Khan could not win a single seat in the first election of his party. He managed to win only one seat in the second election. In the third election, Imran Khan asked his party not to participate in the elections. In the fourth election, they won the government in the small province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa with a small majority and manipulation. Imran Khan paid special attention to fix the system in Pakhtunkhwa which was badly affected in the war against terrorist, providing facilities to the people. With Imran's continuous struggle, he formed the government in the 2018 elections with a two-thirds majority in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and a slight advantage in the country's major provinces of Punjab and the Federation.

Each of us must remember the thrilling evening of August 2018. history was going to be made. heart's were racing, and the nation of Pakistan, especially it's youth, was on the seventh sky. and why not ? after all, Pakistan was on the verge of entering into a redically new phase. the seventy year's long status quo was on the brink of breaking. And Then.. We received the news regarding the victory of Tehreek e Insaf and its most famous leader, Imran Khan, in the general election of 2018. with this victory, people were delighted. They had been dreaming of a sincere leader of Pakistan, and in the form of Imran Khan, their life long dream came true.

So, when in 2018, his party won the election, and he became the Prime Minister of Pakistan, the expectations were remarkable high. people saw in him a magician who would wipe out every disaster from Pakistan and instantly turn it into a developed country. So, after three years, when the outcomes are not up to the expectations of the commoner, the nation is frustrated. We can't blame them. We can't blame the government either. In fact, in a country where everything is on the verge of just being shunned, transformation can not come overnight and sometimes even in decades.
